* To beat the sword master in ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'' you have to learn every insult and response in the game, because the answers to her all unique insults are ones that you initially learn as responses to other insults. People in random encounters will sometimes tell you you are ready to face her, before you've actually learnt all the insults.
** This gets a CallBack in ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'' where you must learn all the insults and rhyming responses to defeat [[FrenchJerk Captain Rottingham]].

* [[spoiler:Henry]] in ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' is the pinnacle of real difficulty. You have to manage to learn how to Dark Step, emergency evade, and slash the hell out of him. He manages to be completely fair, despite his various unblockable attacks and his dreaded yet awesome {{One Hit Kill}}, not to mention the {{Boss Remix}} "We Are Finally Cowboys" blaring in the background. The game actually makes sure that you're (hopefully) at the top of your game by [[spoiler:requiring you to attain all beam katanas before facing off against him.]]

** The final fight in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Ages]]'' rehashes an old battle wherein you had to use Mystery Seeds and the Switch Hook. Move on to simple swordplay and seed shooting, not to mention a couple tricks to find out how to move those Dark Links around. Finally, it's time to use bombs, sword, and the seed shooter. Also, Pegasus seeds help a ''lot''. Damn beetle form.

** Majora from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'' is this, with each phase of the battle requiring a strategy that, in one way or another, mirrors that of a previous boss. But then since Majora and all the previous bosses can pretty much just be beaten by shooting arrows, it's not a deep skillset. But that's assuming you don't actually use the [[GameBreaker Fierce Deity Mask]], which makes the "final exam" completely unnecessary. Granted, the Fierce Deity mask is harder to get than just beating the final boss, so in this case it's more like getting exempt from the final because you aced the entire rest of the class.

** If you play a True Pacifist run, [[spoiler:you have to battle your friends as Lost Souls, captured by Asriel, and you have to dodge their attacks just as before while reaching out to them to bring them back to their senses (because you never fight Alphys in the game, she uses Mettaton's attacks due to being his creator). This part also involves every soul mode in the game, aside from the one used in Muffet's battle due to Muffet being a minor character.]] In a genocide run, [[spoiler:Sans reminds you just how big of a bastard you were to his brother by having the most brutally difficult attacks in the game, many of them based on Papyrus' moves.]]
** [[spoiler:Asgore on his own is a difficult-enough boss who utilizes the blue attacks seen and explained in both Papyrus and Doggo's fights, plus the orange attacks that first appear in the game as a stage hazard in the form of FrickinLaserBeams. He also uses some faster, modified versions of Toriel's attacks in his fight near the end of the Neutral path.]]

* The ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven'' series have these in the form of Remixes, which are basically mashups of the past 4-5 levels you've played. Then each game has a ''true'' Final Exam Boss in the form of Remix 6 for ''Tengoku'', Remix 10 for ''Heaven'' and ''Heaven Fever'', and Remixes Left-Hand, Right-Hand, and Final in ''Megamix'.
* The final boss of ''BitTrip Core'' is a compilation of a bunch of patterns from the entire game, with the beats looking like asteroids that each move at different speeds.
